    Don't understand this X10 thing despite reading loads on remote central.
    Partly because of the UK / US Pronto thing.

    I know I don't need an IR > X10 converter with a UK pronto because the Pronto can talk directly with the X10 module.

    What I don't understand is whether I can just buy an X10 motor module, or do I need something else aswell.

    Can somebody just tell me what X10 component(s) I need to buy to control my Beamax screen directly from the Pronto.
    (I thing I can figure out how to generate the Pronto codes using codegen)

    Thanks:)

    You will need a transceiver that accepts the X10 commands, and transfers them
    onto the mains wiring.
